Viewer settings in search

Using v. 664 64-bit.

I have several programs set to replace the internal viewer for various file types. In the main file panes this works as expected -- the correct viewer is loaded for the correct file extension. But in the Search Files/Folders panel, when I select viewer for a file that has been found, FC always uses the internal viewer. Is this a bug? Or do I need to set something to have this work?

In Configure viewer -> Plugins (F3 then F9) see if your plugin path is correct.
After installing a plugin it's better to save the settings and then restart freecommander, I think...

If you are talking about this setting, you're right, it doesn't "stick" for the search window, but it's not an x64-only bug:

Yes. The programs I have there work in the regular file pane, but in search the internal viewer comes up. The programs I have in the Editors tab do work properly both in the regular file pane and in search.

I hope this is something that will be fixed at some point.

It works fine for me for Viewer (F3) and Quick Viewer (Ctrl+Q) in the search dialog.

Are you having the same problem?

It's not a problem for me because I don't use that option, but yes, it does happen to me and yes, I believe it's a bug (for both x86 and x64 versions).

EDIT:
Fixed in build 666. Thanks!
